Susumu Shingu


JEANNE BUCHER JAEGER | MARAIS

Attentive to nature, Shingu has perceived its inexhaustible potential for variation, and this is probably what explains the delightful freshness of his work, its surprising capacity for renewal. The wind is everywhere, all the time. It is a movement of the atmosphere, invisible; nevertheless, it makes its mark in its own way. It rises, it falls. Elusive and changeable. But if there is nothing to meet it, the wind remains an abstraction. Shingu’s sculptures materialise the wind without reducing it to the simple role of an Aeolian force. The breath of the air plays with the elements as it sees fit and is constantly modifying them. An inert body suddenly comes alive, is gifted with soul, and reminds us of the films of Yazujiro Ozu, of Good Morning for example, in which a colourful piece of linen on a clothesline is discreetly buoyed by the breeze. Time suspended in space, not flowing but repeating itself. This infinite succession of moments offers as many fleeting poems that convince us of the cyclical character of life and of its eternal return. This is the revelation in Shingu’s works.
